Dane Mitchell has worked with a company who produce fake-tree telecommunication towers, used across the world by the telecommunication and surveillance industries to camouflage technology in the landscape, to realise a work that announces and transmits a list handmade by the artist of lost, extinct and disappeared entities and phenomena (approximately 260 categories). The list, which takes over six months to read, is uttered by an electronic voice and can be heard from the two trees in the park or listened to by way of the WIFI network generated by the cell-trees.

 

Post hoc takes a look at the implications of the disappearance.
